Why does Rekordbox switch to default device?

Ok, so I noticed an oddity today. Plugged in the DDJ-RX, switched on Rekordbox DJ, all loads fine. Switched audio output to the ddj-rx output (was set to PC out), start playing just fine.

Part way thru, I heard a computer sound on the DDJ-RX output, so I thought, "Hmm weird." Went into Windows playback devices and sure enough DDJ-RX was set as primary device. Weird. So I switched it back to the normal soundcard and "pop"! Sound stopped in Rekordbox and started routing out to the PC speakers again.

Am I to understand correctly that the Rekordbox DJ/DDJ-RX ASIO drivers are only useable if it's set as default audio device? This seems insane. Why does Rekordbox not use the ASIO directly instead of routing thru windows default device??
